    iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak/unlock using these Custom ipsw files

    Jailbreak and Unlock iOS 5.0.1 using these custom ipsw files:

    Download iOS 5.0.1 custom ipsw files from here :

    Please do not share the links directly only share the PDF file which contains the links this is to make it possible for the links to stay live for download as long as possible. Links that are directly put on a site are removed so hope you share the pdf file that contains the links only.

    ACTIVATED =for official carrier users (who has SIM card from an official carrier) and
    UN-ACTIVATED
    who doesn’t have any SIM card from official carrier but different SIM card from a different network which don’t have any contract with apple before downloading read the instruction carefully on how to upgrade and use custom ipsw and then unlock your idevice.Before starting the jailbreak please make sure that you have read this. The benefit of custom ipsw is that when upgrading it doesn’t change the baseband which means that u can still unlock your idevice once you upgrade to iOS 5 using custom ipsw! If u have in anyway didn’t use custom ipsw and upgraded to iOS 5 then the baseband gets upgraded and you will lose your unlock forever!! So remember always use custom ipsw to upgrade to future iOS if you want or if u rely on unlock! So here are the steps you need to jailbreak and unlock your idevice (if u get errors make sure that you delete sauriks server from hosts file)

    How to Upgrade:
    If you get error 3194
    then Delete sauriks server from hosts file in order to get rid of errors during upgrade. Open the file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (Windows) or /etc/hosts (Mac OS X) and delete the following entry : 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    IFYOU GET ERROR 16xx :
    1- use pwangetool, redsn0w, iReb , snowbreeze to enter DFU mode
    2- delete sauriks server from hosts file and then also after that CLEAR the DNS cache
    4- After downloading and reading above step and understanding it then open iTunes (use newest iTunes 10.5 version)
    5- Connect idevice to iTunes and BACKUP!! Make sure that you backup!! Because when upgrading using custom ipsw you will lose all data so backup and then go to next step.

    6- Now press SHIFT keyboard key + RESTORE button iTunes
    7- Browse to the custom iOS 5 ipsw file you have downloaded and start restore process

    Please do not share the links directly only share the PDF file which contains the links this is to make it possible for the links to stay live for download as long as possible. Links that are directly put on a site are removed so hope you share the pdf file that contains the links only.

    Im sure if you download the latest redsnow b3 version, you can simply run it over. Redsn0w jailbreaks like greenpois0n now, doesnt require you to have the firmware or anything and it wont update your baseband.

    thanks for the posts mahhood, but i got impatient and made my own custom 5.0.1 with redsn0w. worked out perfectly and got siri port installed, but too bad there are little to no proxies available.
